Meet your expert bilingual guide at your hotel and head off in an air-conditioned vehicle on a 4-hour tour exploring Medellín’s rich street art and graffiti. The Colombian city of Medellín once had a reputation for drugs and violence. Today it is fun and exciting, and its vibrant street art adds to the sense of transformation.
Walk around San Javier and ride the famous cable car that cuts through the neighborhood, looking at the street art that covers the walls. And then it’s on to Comuna 13, a neighborhood on a steep hillside that is clad in colorful street art and graffiti. Let the guide explain various works of art and give the background of some of the people portrayed in the graffiti as well as of the artists themselves.
After looking at some eye-popping art, hop on one of the outdoor escalators in the neighborhood. They’re an unusual sight for sure, but they make sense for such a steep part of town. Learn the history of the neighborhood and how these electric stairs have helped transform it for the better.
You can also choose to ride a Metro train with your guide and get to know one of the first mass-transportation projects in the city. After you have explored Comuna 13, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
